Wikimedians of Los Angeles/2024

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

This is the annual report for Wikimedians of Los Angeles (WikiLA), covering the time period from July 2023 to June 2024. Our user group promotes and coordinates the use of Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects in and around the Greater Los Angeles area.

During this year we have been able to conduct the following activities:

After a couple years of being unable to properly plan and execute activities due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are glad that we are once again able to plan a series of events and activities to help drum up WikiLA's presence in Greater Los Angeles, and also to encourage Wikipedians in the region to get together and to work together. We are excited to continue building up on our activities this year in the upcoming 2024-2025 fiscal year. These include:

  • An ocean-themed edit-a-thon. We are working on securing library partners to host this event, mostly targeting libraries in the South Bay.
  • A series of WikiLA Salons where we get to connect Wikipedians with domain experts who can share their knowledge and expertise, which can then be used to improve Wikipedia's coverage of topics related to those domains.
